What is Your First Memory of Physical Pleasure?

Mine was when I was 3 or 4. I was at a parade with my parents. It was summertime, so it was most likely a 4th of July parade. From far off, I could hear the marching band approaching. My excitement began to grow. I loved the coordinated movement, the uniforms, the music. The sound begins to build; they are moving closer. The melody wafts over me. And then the rhythm enters my body and I become synchronized with it, propelled by it. And here comes the line of bass drums! Their beating FILLS THE CAVITY OF MY CHEST AND MY HEART ITSELF BECOMES A DRUM! I close my eyes, perhaps even cover my ears, a small smile on my face. I don't even need my ears, because I am listening with my whole body. It's exquisite, almost too much...almost too much... And then they are gone. The reverberations drain out of my body. I am slightly chagrined, hoping no one noticed my ecstasy.

There are more marching bands to come. I can hardly wait.

Insomnia. Blech.
I really don't remember when I first remember experiences physical pleasure.

Insomnia!! gotta love it. It just so happens that I've been up since 3am (it's 5 now). And what else is there to do but sit in front of a computer.

I'm at that critical point where I either go back to bed or make coffee...hmmm

For me with insomnia, once I'm up, I stay up. For me it's more the "I've been lying here in bed awake for 2 hours now - should I get up?" question. I think once you're contemplating making coffee, you're up for the day.

If you have insomnia, who needs coffee?
